I have always had to be mindful of my weight, but I always ate healthy foods (in fact, I preferred them). I lost weight and got back in shape rather quickly after all 3 of my kids. I am now taking 300 MG of Effexor XR and 100 MG of Zoloft. They have caused insatiable cravings for sweets, which I never cared for in the past. I have gained 40 lbs and it is making me miserable!I'm only 5FT 2IN. I was working out 6-7 days a week for 1-1 1/2 hours a day. This was just to somewhat maintain, not even lose weight. I am so frustrated. I really have no choice but to take the medication, because I was tested positive for the Huntington's Chorea gene, which in turn causes major depression in a majority of people. Does anyone know what I can do?

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
